Many couples attempt to handle conflict and the delicate aspects of their relationship on their own. This often leads increased negativity when one or both partners feel criticized, defensive or unheard. The result is an increased breakdown in communication where many couples become further alienated from one another.
Over time, many couples report spending less time with one another, resulting in decreased intimacy. Limited free time and excessive responsibilities can contribute to couples spending less time together, laying the foundation for increased conflict. Financial problems, stressful family of origin dynamics, trust issues, and many other challenges may result in a complete communication breakdown.
